Vault Size

By default, a vault grows automatically as more data is written to it, and shrinks automatically when its free space percentage reaches the threshold defined by the auto_compact_at property.

Applications can use the following properties to both control, and obtain information about, a vault's size. Please refer to each one's documentation for more information.

  • vault_size_max: Specifies the maximum size a vault can be; 0 (unlimited) by default.
  • vault_size_min: Specifies the minimum size a vault can be; 0 by default.
  • vault_size: Reflects a vault's actual size; and can also be used to explicitly resize a vault, keeping in mind the following:
    • A vault cannot shrink more than its available free space allows (i.e., not by more than vault_free_space bytes).
    • A vault cannot shrink beyond vault_size_min bytes.
    • If vault_size_max is not 0 (unlimited), a vault cannot grow beyond vault_size_max bytes.
    • If a vault grows enough to reach/exceed its auto_compact_at threshold, it will automatically shrink again when the next automatic compaction occurs.
  • vault_free_space: Reflects the actual amount of free space a vault has available.
  • possible_size: Reflects the maximum size a vault could possibly be.
  • possible_free_space: Reflects the maximum amount of free space a vault could possibly have available.
